The Butterfly Effect


The inspiration for this mood board came when I saw this picture of The Butterfly Dress from Luly Yangs Metamorphosis Collection.  Yes it is quite gothic but it whispers magic and illusion, something that every bride can aspire to when planning their wedding.  This is probably why butterfly's are a big theme for weddings.  Using some local and very talented people I have put together these Butterfly inspiration board to allow you to ooze a bit of magic into your big day.

  1. That is such a beautiful, unique dress, I love it. I loved my wedding, but weddings have come on style wise so much in four years that I kinda wish I was getting married now. With fab blogs like this one it's so easy for brides to get inspiration x

  2. What a stunning dress and great form of inspiration. Just shows you can style your wedding around anything - and it because of blogs like this one that allow that creativity to flourish!

  3. Kiku boutuque in Manchester will embroider butterfly's onto dresses they make.

  4. Thanks for your support guys. Although I wouldn't wear this dress for my wedding it would make for one hell of a photoshoot!! x

  5. Hi Joanne, the dress is gorgeous! What lovely choices for your butterfly moodboard! I like Mick's image of the butterfly fondants looks yummy! :) Many Thanks Nicola ;)
